LB's silver wings
« on: April 03, 2014, 08:31:17 AM »
As a USAAF collector , I really should be taking more interest in silver wings , but as there are so many  fakes etc around , I have tended to shy away from an important section in the USAAF collecting hobby

from the top

GEMSCO  PIN BACK AIRCREW WING

STERLING MARKED PIN BACK AIRCREW WING

AMCRAFT MARKED  PIN BACK PILOT WING

STERLING MARKED CLUTCH BACK PILOT WING

STERLING MARKED CLUTCH BACK GUNNERS WING (STERLING CLUTCHES)

STERLING MARKED CLUTCH BACK GUNNERS WING
 
STERLING MARKED PIN BACK BOMARDIERS WING

Any comments etc   please feel fee to chastise me in any way !!! ;D

To be honest Erik ,I was a little "worried" about that pair , but Ian has set my mind at ease with them  ;)

It is a shame that the pin on the AMCRAFT set  is broken  :(
